About the Ski Resort

Sugarbush Resort is one of the nation's premier skiing resorts, with 111 trails descending from six interconnected mountains, all in the heart of Vermont's Green Mountain National Forest.

Located just a 45 minute drive south of Burlington, three hours from Boston & five hours from the George Washington Bridge, you can find your adventure without traveling far.

Various airlines also service the Sugarbush Resort. Direct flights offered by JetBlue, Independence Air, U.S. Airways, United and more.

Two interconnected mountains + 2,600 feet of vertical + 4,300 acres + 16 lifts = 1 massive playground... where you'll rarely find a lift line.

This Resort offers classic Vermont character, superb dining, a diversity of skiing for every level, top-rated Lodging, entertainment and a wealth of apres-ski & other Activities.

Extensive Ski & Ride schools offer instruction & fun for every level of riders. The Burton Learn-to-Ride grasps the techniques of riding from equipment set-up, to lift operations, to riding the park.

If Wilderness adventure calls your name, 11 wooded areas and almost 40 acres of new gladed terrain guarantee boundless opportunities for exploration. New this year, accelerate your learning curve & tempt your adventurous side... visit the Adventure Learning Center.

Sugarbush Resort offers some of the most revered skiing terrain and an unparalleled commitment to skier and rider services. Sugarbush has constantly earned the praise of skiers and the ski media alike.

An incredibly powerful state of the art snowmaking system provides that famous whites on the mountain, the "Sugarbush Snow." Nestled in an area known for storms barreling across Lake Champlain, the resort gets slammed with an average of 260 inches of snow a year!

With all this snow, Sugarbush has added two grooming behemoths to their already extensive fleet of corduroy cutters. More is better, because at Sugarbush there is no such thing as overkill when it comes to keeping the hill smooth.

As for the lifts, Sugarbush has the most high-speed detachable quads in the eastern United States. A total of 16 lifts get you to the top of the mountain even quicker!

Sugarbush Resort is a classic ski vacation value, a must-visit on the list of every level of skier or mountain travel enthusiast.
